A massive bombing raid by Allied forces on Dresden beginning on February 13, 1945 sparked a firestorm that destroyed much of the historical centre of the city. Later, a few thousand far-right extremists are expected to conduct a 'funeral march' through the city, opposed by thousands of anti-fascist activists who form a human chain as a sign against the neo-Nazis.
